This piece was owned by an African Voodoo Priestess. It contains all of priestess' power, which you will be allowed to access to use and perform your own voodoo magic. The majority of the magic you will conduct will be done through candles while in possession of this piece. The light of the candle is an offering that will be sent out into the world to acquire and bring back what you are attempting to seek.
The candle is not necessary but it is a powerful addition that strengthens this item and only effectively brings you more results.
